• Are you looking for an Argentine Tango teacher? • Do you want to learn to dance tango? • Are you looking for a private tango lesson? • How to know who a good tango teacher is? • Do you want to become a tango teacher? Then you can read this book! NOTIFICATION: This is not a tango book, nor about how to learn the steps to dance tango in Buenos Aires. This is a book about people, human beings who embrace and relate in a very particular way in an "environment" with their own rules. In the Coach, I find a professional and appropriate figure to accompany us in learning this "language." I consider it appropriate to compare him with a gardener who knows about the weather, the seasons and irrigation techniques, among many other things. It is taken with seriousness and professionalism to prepare the ground to offer the seed the conditions that satisfy and accompany its development. He is a great observer and takes into account even the smallest details. However, he has confidence and believes in the potential that exists within the seed. He doesn't need to see what it has inside or check how much fruit it's going to produce... This mystery seems wonderful to me and is revealed little by little during the process of germination and growth. This essay is, on the one hand, for those who are "gardeners" by vocation, with whom I wish to seriously develop this activity. On the other hand, it's for those people who want to learn to dance the tango and have no idea where or who to start with. Through this path we can end up getting to know ourselves a little more. Be attentive! WARNING: By knowing the tango you are in serious risk of falling in love with the activity, its music and its people.

Drawing from Life explores revolutionary drawing and sketching in the early People's Republic of China (1949-1965) in order to discover how artists created a national form of socialist realism. Tracing the development of seminal works by the major painters Xu Beihong, Wang Shikuo, Li Keran, Li Xiongcai, Dong Xiwen, and Fu Baoshi, author Christine I. Ho reconstructs how artists grappled with the representational politics of a nascent socialist art. The divergent approaches, styles, and genres presented in this study reveal an art world that is both heterogeneous and cosmopolitan. Through a history of artistic practices in pursuit of Maoist cultural ambitions--to forge new registers of experience, new structures of feeling, and new aesthetic communities--this original book argues that socialist Chinese art presents a critical, alternative vision for global modernism.

Mirroring a symposium held by the museum in May 2005, this book investigates the basis of Native modernism by eliciting a broad discussion about the critical perspectives and practices of Native artists across North America.

Johann Joachim Winckelmann (1717û68), German classical archaeologist and art historian, is considered the founder of neoclassicism and of systematic art history. His masterpiece, Geschichte der Kunst des Altertums (1764) surveys the history of Greek Art and sets forth his theories on its fundamental aesthetic principles. This work was expanded in a second edition of 1776 and the work made Winckelmann a European celebrity. This classic text gave birth to late eighteenth-century neoclassicism, and its influence on writers and philosophers, such as Lessing, Herder and Goethe, was enormous. The only complete English version of this work is G. Henry Lodge's translation of 1880 which is reprinted here and includes a life of Winckelmann. The majority of other essays by Winckelmann likely to be of interest to English-speaking audiences are included in the first volume reprinted here. Six of these essays were originally translated by Henry Fuseli, the Swiss critic and painter. Curtis Bowman, as well as writing a new introduction that contextualizes Winckelmann's importance for the modern reader, has added two new translations of Winckelmann's art critical essays, neither of which have been fully available to English readers before. This set will be of interest to Western art historians, German studies and aesthetics scholars by providing English-speaking readers with all of Winckelmann's most important writings on art.

This new volume of the first-ever annotated edition of Dickens' journalism begins with examples of his work (never before collected) as a young reporter for the great Liberal paper The Morning Chronicle - reports of grand public ceremonials and rowdy elections as well as highly entertaining theatre reviews, all marked by touches of what we now think of as quintessentially Dickensian humor. Between 1837 and 1849 Dickens wrote, alongside his hugely successful novels, many articles and reviews. They were published anonymously in the famous Radical weekly The Examiner, and a generous selection of them is presented here. Whether the subject be a botched attempt to put an end to the West African slave trade, crime statistics, ghosts, panoramas, the horrors of a parish baby-farm, or outdated royal ceremonial, Dickens writes here with all the linguistic verve and passionate energy characteristic of his great novels. This is equally true of the pieces he began writing on a weekly basis for his own journal Household Words from 1850 onwards. This volume covers the first eighteen months of the paper's existence; we find Dickens celebrating such things as cheap theatres and the new detective police, satirising the follies and ineptitude of politicians, campaigning for workhouse reform and for more humane treatment of animals driven to slaughter, lambasting Pre-Raphaelite painting, and generally keeping a finger of genius on the pulse of what he called "the moving age". For the Dickens reader there are innumerable fascinating links to be made between all this remarkable journalism and the great novels; while for all those more widely interested in the social and cultural history of early Victorian England this volume offers truly a wealth of material.

From her relationships to surrealism, from magical realism to her humor, from politics to her grappling with the literary legacies of Virginia Woolf and Marquis de Sade, this distinguished volume of essays commemorates the work of Angela Carter. Here her fellow writers, along with an impressive company of critics, discuss the novels, stories, and polemics that make her one of the most spellbinding authors of her generation. They trace out the signs of her originality, her daring, and her wicked wit, as well as her charm, to produce an indispensable companion to her texts.
